This version fixes a few minor bugs that came up after the release of
version 2.0.0. It also allows compilation of VDR with older versions of
the DVB API.

The changes since version 2.0.0:

- Fixed initializing cDevice::keepTracks.
- Fixed an endless loop in cTextWrapper::Set() in case the given Width is smaller than
   one character (reported by Stefan Braun).
- Added definitions for older DVB API versions, back until 5.0 (based on a patch from
   Udo Richter).
- Fixed handling '/' and '~' in recording file names in case DirectoryEncoding is
   used (thanks to Lars Hanisch).
- Changed cThread::SetIOPriority() from "best effort class" to "idle class" in order to
   improve overall performance when an editing process is running (thanks to Jochen
- Fixed aspect ratio and position of scaled video in the dvbhddevice plugin.

Have fun!
